Car Seat Class

So... we went to yet another 'baby' class. But this time it was just me and Jenya that went. We weren't really sure what to expect, but they said in our pre-natal class that a whopping 90% of people buckle their kids in incorrectly to their car seats and that you could schedule a safety check with your health and safety department. 90% is a large # and we didn't want to be a part of that statistic... So, we tried to schedule our safety check and ended up getting roped in to an hour long class and then an additional 30 min car seat safety check.

Yesterday we went to the class and found that there was actually some good info that I would've never known otherwise (because I'm still quite children illiterate). Overall I would say that it just made me more aware of what to look for in car seats as well as being more aware of the labels and car seat info criteria and what all the different options were. It's probably good to go to once.

Did you know you have to replace the carseat every five years? I know that the baby won't be in that seat for five years, obviously, but if you have another baby six years down the road, you'll have to get another one. I think that really sucks because they're expensive, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

this is such a good idea. I have never really done this, but I probably should. I am sure I am doing everything wrong!
